Enrichment Classes for children ages 3 to 5

These classes give children ages 3-5 a chance to explore music, science, the arts and more after Preschool dismissal. Both children enrolled in JCP’s ECC, as well as those from other schools, participate in these programs. JCP ECC students whose class dismissal coincides with the start of their after school program will be escorted to class by a member of JCP staff.

Play, Create, Integrate!

Children will develop critical social skills including effective turn-taking, flexibility, reading social cues and conflict resolution. This small group provides support for creative play and teaches children to navigate social situations in a structured, fun and warm environment.

Let’s Explore Science

Using games, stories, and hands-on classroom science demonstrations, children will learn the basics of scientific exploration. Each week, children take on the role of a scientist and explore different properties of chemistry, physics, and biology.

Past experiments have included constructing a mini volcano; exploring basic mechanics using ramps, wedges, tubes and blocks; and dissecting a flower with tweezers and observing their findings under a magnifying glass. Children will be encouraged to ask questions and explore the world around them.
